Windows Insider Preview Builld 19037.1 (20H1) Released to BOTH Slow and Fast Rings:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19037 | Windows Experience Blog.

Yes, another Build today.  The only changes listed are
  • The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build.This doesn’t mean we’re done…
  • Windows PowerShell ISE is now a Feature on Demand (installed by default), and you will see it in the list in Optional Features Settings.

via Bleeping Computer at Microsoft Starts Forced Feature Updates on Windows 10 1809:

Microsoft says that Windows 10 1909 feature updates will start automatically installing on Windows 10 1809 devices beginning today to smooth out the update process to a more recent Windows 10 version.

"Beginning today, we will slowly start the phased process to automatically initiate a feature update for devices running the October 2018 Update (Windows 10, version 1809) Home and Pro editions, keeping those devices supported and receiving the monthly updates that are critical to device security and ecosystem health," Microsoft says.

"We are starting this rollout process several months in advance of the end of service date to provide adequate time for a smooth update process," the company adds on the Windows 10 Health Dashboard.

See the article for additional information.

NOTE: We are looking to begin releasing new builds from our development branch *very soon*. This means we will be releasing builds to Insiders in the Fast ring from the RS_PRERELEASE development branch again instead of the VB_RELEASE branch. This also means the desktop watermark will be returning with these builds. As is normal with pre-release builds, these builds may contain bugs and be less stable. Now is the time to check your Windows Insider Settings and switch to the Slow ring before if you wish to remain on 20H1. 

For Insiders in the Fast ring who have selected to stop getting Insider Preview builds when the next major release of Windows 10 is available under Windows Insider Settings, we will be moving you to the Slow ring as part of honoring this setting. You will remain here until 20H1 is finalized. This only applies to Insiders in the Fast ring who selected this.

Although LzD truly is A Global Community!*, there still are many members with roots in the U.S. who celebrate Thanksgiving.  Wishing you and yours a happy, peaceful day filled with laughter, fun and, of course, football!
